The Bloody Beetroots and Australian rockers Jet have announced the release of the new double single ‘My Name Is Thunder‘. This is the first track The Bloody Beetroots has shared following his signing to Last Gang Records and will appear on his next album to be released later this year.
The double single arrives to represent the various genres that define The Bloody Beetroots with the first version driven by heavy synths and electronic beats while the other is led by Jet’s gritty guitar-driven rock and roll.
Both versions of ‘My Name Is Thunder‘ are available to stream below:
“I knew this song needed a certain rock tone… a tone like Nic Cester of Jet had. We thought instead of someone ‘like Nic Cester,’ how about we get the real Nic Cester! Thinking he would be in Australia, it was fate that he lived just a couple hours away from me in Italy. I found him,” says The Bloody Beetroots’ Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. “We worked together, ate together, drank together and created something very powerful together. Around this time the Jet guys stared talking and thinking about getting back together, when Nic shared this with his bandmates, the idea came up to have ALL of Jet involved. Because of our different influences, we had different ideas on the mixing and from that we came up with two versions. It’s the best of both our worlds!”
The Bloody Beetroots —who celebrates his 10 year anniversary–is the moniker of artist, producer and mastermind Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Born in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy, Rifo was inspired by a lifelong love of comic books and punk rock, which comprise the visceral kick of The Bloody Beetroots’ sound. Unleashing his first recordings in 2007, The Bloody Beetroots’ sound has been featured in commercials, TV shows and video games, and powered dozens of remixes for artists including Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, The Refused, Peaches, Crossfaith and Britney Spears.
